Thomas Lane, the rookie ex-cop charged in George Floyd’s murder case is out of jail after posting his $750k bail.
Lane’s family was seeking donations via a website they set up to raise money for his legal defense after he and 2 other ex-cops were arrested and charged with aiding and abetting 2nd-degree murder, and aiding and abetting 2nd-degree manslaughter.
Lane’s attorney claims the ex-cop did everything he could to help George Floyd. Lane’s family argued the same … pointing out Lane suggested rolling Floyd on his side … which they — and prosecutors — say Derek Chauvin refused to do.
